Alexis Korner Memorial Concert to support the Macmillan Cancer Relief Fund

Buxton Opera House (Sun) April 17, 1994

I have this footage. It originally aired on Central TV as 'Tribute to Alexis Korner' and runs 6 mins 20 secs. It opens with the Bob Harris introduction of them and they go

straight into 'Baby, Please Don't Go', followed by 'I Can't Quit You,' during which

the credits roll and the footage fades out. The complete set list performed as follows:

1. Baby Please Don't Go 2. I Can't Quit You 3. I've Been Down So Long 4. That's Why I Love You 5. Train Kept A Rollin.

They had actually held an afternoon rehearsal/soundcheck for twenty minutes (which was apparently also filmed). Then they returned to the Palace Hotel just down the road, where Robert conversed in the bar. The morning after the show Robert and Bob Harris were together in the same bar talking at length about gigs in Rotterdam...lunacy in Los Angeles…the past 20 years...and so on.

Thanks Steve glad to know its around.Just wish i could find the full show It was some line up also Rory Gallagher should have been on the bill but was taken ill,but still we had Paul Jones,Chris barber,Zoot money plus plenty of others who shaped the british music scene,I do know that one of the interviews with Robert was held backstage in the dressing rooms upstairs as i was watching it being filmed.also that Jimmy was asking everyong to let him know when either Duffy Power or Davy Graham were on stage as they where ones of his heros and he wanted to see them play.Some time before going on stage Jimmy/Robert sat in the right hand side fire escape curtain having a ciggarette when a member of the crowd popped his head round looking for the toilets,he asked for directions then it sank in........F***** hell its robert plant then looked again.....F***** me Pagey! the look on his face was priceless, !I recall he even took one of the marlboro cig dimps off the floor( look out for it on ebay!) what a great day in such marvelous surroundings

I once found it while searching for Page & Plant videos. I think its great to see this. Its the earliest video that I know from the P & P project (except Knebworth 1990).

The Knebworth show in 1990 was not part of the P/P project. It was just Jimmy joining Robert and his band for a few numbers. Robert was being honored as a Silver Clef Award winner.

Actually the P&P project was underway prior to this concert (4/14/94). You see, two months prior they'd been working at Depot Studios near Kings Cross in London using a series of drum loops as backing tracks, and then they cut a demo of 'Wonderful One' at RAK Studios in St. Johns Wood. Finally, they rehearsed in advance for this event.

I thought I had read somewhere that Wonderful One was recorded well before the Unledded project and now you cleared this up. Thanks Steve. That's a great tune.

While it was recorded well before the August '94 Unledded performances, it was of course written specficially for that project as opposed to anything else.
